My work focuses on the quirky moods and personalities of the subjects I paint. I strive to capture the essence of my subjects in an intuitive way. I live and work in the countryside, where I continue to pursue my lifelong love of sketching, painting and drawing animals in their natural environments.
Award winning artist Sarah Delany lives in Abbeyleix in County Laois, Ireland. She began her artistic training at the Byam Shaw School of painting and drawing, graduating in fine art. Since then she has emerged as a gifted painter working in a variety of media. In the early nineties she studied animation, the fruits of which are evident in her work. Included are figurative, equine and canine studies.
Sarah intuitively applies her paint in thick broad, highly spirited brushstrokes, that not only convey the essence of her subject but also highlights an artist who understands what paint is about.
Sarah has exhibited in both England and Ireland and her work is in several private collections.
